Hell yeah I'm glad Jay Robinson is putting Front Row Joe back in the seat lately.

I'm really looking forward to watching the last Cup race I will get to see this year even though all of my main Chevy drivers are already eliminated. Now I will have to go back to my old driver Kevin Harvick even though he is in a Ford. I sure would like to see Alex Bowman get another win this year.

I might be on an island on this one but after a relative sample size I think I miss the old Phoenix configuration, with the dog leg in turn 2 was it? That layout was legit.

When I take over NASCAR and SMI, all turns will be renumbered so front stretch trioval turns have a number (including Phoenix), and quadoval fronts have two numbered turns. Oh, and each of the four turns in the Glen 'bus stop'. If the driver has to crank the wheel over, it's a turn.

that sounds more than fair, we can't have illegitimate corners

I hope this race brings it. Honestly some of the worst playoffs I’ve ever watched. Just no real close competitive racing down the stretch compared to what we saw earlier in the year

I streamed the practice on my PC off of the nbcsports website. No issues there.

This place looks so cool at night time. They should absolutely make the championship next year a night race, screw whatever NFL match up they'll have on.
IMO nothing beats Homestead’s sunsets. Its the perfect final race.

JGR isn’t messing around this weekend. As tough as it is to pass here with the package, Busch will likely check out early.

I can't believe that today is the day that I actually get to sit and watch a cup playoff race. The one thing that would make this better is if Bowman was still in the hunt "maybe next year". My line up now is Larson, Elliott, Blaney, and Harvick in that order. It was a toss up between Elliott and Blaney so Chevy vs Ford broke the tie. It sucks that Nascar and Nhra has their last race of the season on the same weekend this year so this will be my last cup race I can watch this year.:(
